This trash-to-art contest encourages kids to create art out of materials that otherwise would have been thrown away while learning about animals. The Zoological Society is hosting its annual eco-themed art contest for children ages 17 and under. Participate and win fun prizes! Here’s how it works: Kids can pick any kind of discarded materials, such as soda cans. Then, create an art project using these recycled materials only (tape and glue are okay). This year's theme is "Animals in Asia." Artwork should include Asian animals such as snow leopards, red pandas and Bactrian camels.
Parents, fill out the form online or download the entry form to print off and mail in by Aug. 10. Projects will be displayed at the Milwaukee County Zoo on Aug. 25 at Animal Safari. This is a behind-the-scenes event for animal sponsors. Contest registration does not include entry into the behind-the-scenes tours. Sponsor an animal here to receive an invitation to participate in the tours.
Please see the updated contest guidelines for important information. If you have any questions, please contact Becky at 414-258-2333.
